I.V. Sedation

I.V. Sedation

Your dental treatment completed while you sleep. There is no need to feel anxious anymore!

Do you avoid going to the dentist or make excuses to complete treatment? Is it because you have dental anxiety or had a previous traumatic dental experience in the past? Do you have a gag reflex or cannot keep your mouth open for a long period of time? Or would you like treatment done in complete comfort and without any recollection of the procedure?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, you should consider treatment under I.V sedation!

Intravenous sedation, known shortly as I.V sedation, involves a drug administered to make a person feel like they’re asleep when they’re actually still conscious, making it easier for the dentist to complete the treatment and more comfortable for the patient. The relaxation level is quite high, which means you most likely won’t remember the procedure.

I.V sedation is becoming a popular choice, every four weeks we offer sessions on site for patients who prefer being under I.V sedation for their dental treatment. Please have a consult with one of our dentists and discuss if I.V sedation is suitable for you.

We work the lovely Anaesthetist Dr Tony Barnard who comes to use from Adelaide Anaesthetic Services. If you would like to know more about them, please follow the link at the bottom of this page. He has many years of experience and a bright and cheerful personality. He is friendly and caring with a great sense of humour. But most importantly he is there to take care of you during the entire time you are in the room. Although we work together with Adelaide Anaesthetic Services, we are not directly associated with them so there is separate information and fees that are required on their part before going ahead with your I.V. Sedation appointment.

Please speak to us if you have further questions about I.V. Sedation as a potential option for you or someone you know.
